Cycling is widespread in the UK with specialist road, race and mountain bikes all gaining in popularity.
Bicycle technology has improved significantly over the years such as front & rear adjustable suspension, hydraulically operated disc brakes, not to mention the use of high strength, low weight materials such as carbon frames. These items require professional assessment from a bicycle expert when they fail or following an accident.
When a bicycle is involved in a crash it is important to have a cycle expert to examine it to ensure that no damage is missed, in particular latent cracks to frames & forks. We have bicycle experts who, being avid cyclists themselves, understand well how bicycles are meant to perform and how they crash. They understand what components can be repaired and what require replacement for safety and aesthetic purposes.
